One day I opened the crisper drawer and was presented with an almost week old head of cauliflower. It was okay, but it sure wouldn’t last another day. I had to think of something to do with it, and fast.
Since I quit my job and moved to Oregon, I have been busier than ever. I love to cook, but there are some days when I just need a really simple idea. My favorite type of cauliflower is roasted. I started thinking about making a one pan dish. I had chicken breasts. That made a plan.
That evening One Pan Roasted Cauliflower with Lemon Rosemary Chicken was born and it was a big hit!! I hope you like it, as well.
One Pan Roasted Cauliflower with
Lemon Rosemary Chicken
4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
1 head cauliflower, cut into florets
1 lemon, sliced
1 cup mushrooms, stems removed, sliced
2 Tbsp. olive oil
4 large sprigs rosemary
1 tsp. garlic powder
sea salt to taste
pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 450F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, toss the cauliflower and mushrooms with olive oil, garlic powder, one sprig of rosemary, salt and pepper.
Brush parchment paper with more olive oil. Lay out chicken breasts on half the pan. Cover with lemon slices and rosemary.
On the other half of the pan, spread out the mushrooms and cauliflower.
Roast until cauliflower is golden brown and chicken is cooked through, about 25 minutes. You will probably have to remove the mushrooms about the 15 minute mark.
Serve with rice.
If I had a Christmas wishlist 😉 at the top would be the Microsoft Surface Pro. Don’t get me wrong, I love my sturdy old laptop, but the Surface Pro is so cool! Just check out all the features:
- It’s ultra thin, and versatile. I could use it with the keyboard, just like my laptop, or without, like my tablet. Which means, it would be easier to bring to bed! (Not sure if Art would think that’s a good thing, LOL)
- Input through either the keyboard, Surface Pen or touch. How awesome is that! I can draw right on the screen, circle stuff, write notes, whatever I need.
- It’s lightning-fast. 6th generation Intel core processors and up to 1TB of storage mean I will not be needing an upgrade anytime soon.
- Two front-facing speakers running on Dolby Audio Premium. Can you say movies and music (two of my favorite things).
Have I convinced you yet, Santa? If so, could I please make one more request? I’d love to add the Surface Pro Ergonomic Keyboard. They’re only $129.99 at the Microsoft Store.
The natural arc and slope and beautiful palm rest mean my hands won’t get too tired when I’m pounding out those 1500 word, long form blog posts.
